With the triple digit days it’s so important to be in tune to your bodies hydration status. If you live in a hot, dry climate, you learn to ignore your thirst but by the time you are thirsty, you are actually dehydrated!
It is important to always be aware of and pay attention to the signs of dehydration which are thirst, flushed skin, premature fatigue, increased body temperature, faster breathing and pulse rate, increased perception of effort, and decreased exercise capacity.
You can use creative ways to keep things cool while exercising, but hydration is your best defense against heat stroke. Remember to drink a glass of water every morning when you wake up and to carry a reusable water bottle with you on these hot summer days. The double walled insulated aluminum hydroflasks are ideal because not only are they BPA free, but they keep your water cold as well.
